Vodacom 3G / HSDPA : Data Card Setup

Once you have received your 3G equipment and your MWEB account has been activated, follow these steps to get connected to the Internet:

  1. Insert the "Vodafone Mobile Connect" Dashboard Setup CD into your laptop's CD/DVD drive. The setup process should begin automatically; simply follow the prompt
  2. Take note of the 4 digit PIN code provided.
  3. Insert the 3G Data Card into your laptop computer when prompted.
  4. When prompted to select your service, select Prefer 3G, but also allow GPRS network. This will ensure that if you move outside a metropolitan area, for example, you will still be able to access the Internet.
  5. Finish the installation of the Vodafone Mobile Connect Dashboard software by typing in your four-digit PIN.
  6. Click the OK button.
You will now be able to use your Vodafone Mobile Connect Dashboard software.
  1. Click the Mobile button in the top-left corner of the Vodafone Mobile Connect Dashboard to connect to the Internet.
  2. To disconnect, click the Mobile button again.

It is important to disconnect your 3G or 3G with HSDPA connection when you are done to ensure that no data is transferred unnecessarily.
